Sometimes I think that I’m not doing enough. Not enough art practice, not enough inspiration, not reading enough of those 1000 pages for school (not exaggerating here!). And what about writing songs and painting?
The truth is, I have so many things I could do. I could always do more and could think that nothing is ever enough. But I don’t think that is healthy. I realize that you can’t do everything all at once, but that there are times for things. There is a difference between what has to be done, what can be done, and what is completely unnecessary.
So that being said, I know that I “need” to find ways to challenge my creativity, even with a full schedule. I may not have much time, but I use what I’ve got. So today, I did a few “scribble challenges”, where you do a random scribble and make a cool picture out of that. And I made a low-sugar pumpkin pie in a cast-iron pan. It was great to let go and just have fun. Was it “enough”? Probably not, but that’s life. And it’s ok to enjoy what you can do.
